Breastfeeding 101

I was just telling the hubby this morning while I was nursing the baby that I didn't expect breastfeeding would be draining on me emotionally and physically. I really thought it would've came to me so natural, like second nature. NOPE!! I struggled in the first month and most of the second. Y'know, because I was recovering from a c-section and my hormones were SO out of whack, it was not easy. Oh, don't get me wrong, by all means.... I am very happy to be breastfeeding. It is indeed a special bond. Like, right now I am at the stage where I feel comfortable giving advice to others who decide to nurse. It's that I have to return to work from maternity leave next month and I feel a bit overwhelmed with anxiety of having to get the technique of pumping while I am away. For example, in order to keep up with my milk supply I must pump, at work. Did I mention.... AT WORK I will be pumping milk?!? I am probably over-reacting, but I want the transition to be smooth. Very unlikely that will happen.
